How COVID-19 Is Affecting Online Gaming Industry

The coronavirus pandemic is spreading rapidly throughout the world and affecting the way we live, work, and play. People are afraid to leave their homes for fear of contracting the virus, yet they are quickly becoming bored having to adapt to this new way of life.

With social distancing and self-isolation becoming the newest terms to add to our vast and diverse language, more and more people are turning to the internet for their daily news and entertainment.

And, why not? Most of us are working from home, we are following shelter in place orders from the government and hoping that the coronavirus pandemic will have run its course soon.

With that being said, there is another side effect of being stuck at home during this pandemic, and it has to deal with the world of online gaming. This segment is booming and attracting more players than it has ever before.

It has a lot to do with all sports events being canceled around the globe, and many fans transition their passion to online games. They try playing all kinds of games, from basketball to baseball, or football and even add other games in between. With plenty of professional athletes joining these games and also streaming there play, this is only bound to be more and more popular while pandemic continues.

The same could be said about the online gambling industry, which is a thriving multi-billion dollar business. It also sees drastic growth in new players and is beating all-time records for participant count.

To the extent that the biggest poker site even faced server issues and was not able to handle all of the traffic. However, even that did not stand in the way of beating the record and attracting over 93k players in one of the events, which is hard to imagine happening without the effect of the virus and everyone sitting at home.

As more people are home all day long, a large portion of them is looking to have some fun and this is why online poker is booming at the moment. Google trends show a significant increase in interest in poker and many other online games.

With the rise in users, the gambling industry is also seeing a lot of inexperienced players joining the online poker tournament sites.
